Everyone has their own taste, but some things are unanimously loved. Today, we are talking about some timeless Korean dramas. There are certain K-dramas that you re-watch despite knowing the entire plot by heart. After days of jumping from one new plot to another, you feel like going back to an old favourite. There is something about the chemistry between the actors and the storyline that makes you want to watch some shows again. If this happens with you, you are not alone. 

We can’t help it because K-dramas are truly a whole different genre! There is romance, comedy, twists, amazing chemistry and much more. One moment you will laugh out loud, making your mom think you are part crazy and at the other moment, you find yourself reaching for a tissue to wipe your tears, making your mom think you have completely lost it. It takes you on a rollercoaster of emotions, and that’s why people love Korean dramas. 

Check out the list of 12 timeless South Korean dramas you can watch over and over again. 

1. Descendants of the Sun 

2. Healer 

3. Coffee Prince

4. My Love From The Star 

5. Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo

6. Reply 1988

7. W: Two Worlds 

8. Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo 

9. While You Were Sleeping 

10. Goblin

11. The Heirs 

12. Kill Me, Heal Me

What's wrong with secretary Kim, because this is my first life, The Heirs, memories of the Alhambra, I'll see you when the weather's fine, Goblin, cheese in the Trap, last winter the wind blow, the king Eternal monarch, healer, Yong pal, weightlifting fairy, Boys Over Flowers, another Miss oh, hi Mama bye Mama, K2, one spring night. A piece of your mind (the score is wonderful). There are others that have brought me great joy that I just can't remember off the top of my mind right now. Some of those just came to mind. Legend of the blue sea, oh My Ghost, bring it on ghost, Hotel Del Luna, and though way too long mr. Sunshine. Still leaving out some greats, but I'll stop here.

I have watched 50 Kdramas now. I prefer ones which have a supernatural element in them. The Rooftop Prince being my favorite so far. Gu Family Book was great but it was let down by the ending, which cried out for a sequel. 49 Days, Angels Last mission:Love, Oh my Ghostess, Lets Fight Ghost, Hotel Del Luna, Legend Of The Blue Sea, Abyss, Orange Marmalde, Borg Mom, The Master Sun, Introvetted Boss, My Girlfriend Is A Gumiho, 30 But Still 17 and The Tale Of Nokdu are some other good ones to watch too.
